Tentacle Tribe Choreographing “Kaleido” for Ouro Collective

Vancouver-based OURO Collective have been generating a lot of buzz in our city with a very unique approach to storytelling which utilizes street and contemporary dance. They spent the past year creating a new work called “PACE” and commissioned acclaimed Montreal choreographers Tentacle Tribe (Emmanuelle LêPhan and Elon Höglund) to create a second work for them, called “Kaleido”.

Both works will be presented at each of their performances, May 5th to 8th. The clip above offers a small peek at Tentacle Tribe working with OURO Collective on “Kaleido”.

Contemporary dance can sometimes be a little inaccessible (at least for me), and what makes OURO unique is their desire to bring new audiences, of all ages, to the theatre. Cristina Bucci, a member of the group, says “We’re interested in producing content that extends beyond our immediate social circles or individual dance communities. We intend to honour the true spirit of street dance as an art form that brings together people regardless of their background or dance experience.”

I highly recommend checking out their show. Whether you’re super knowledgable about dance or clueless (like me), you’ll leave inspired! Just a heads up, their last show sold out and people were turned away at the door. Advance tickets are available here.
